Where Your Money Goes

Since 1982 Susan G. Komen has invested almost $3 billion in the fight against breast cancer, becoming the largest non-governmental source of funds in the world.  Every major breast cancer breakthrough has been funded in part through Komen research dollars.

In North Jersey, Susan G. Komen has invested nearly $26 million into research and local community-based breast health screening, treatment, education, and support programs.  The nine counties that we serve are: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren.

Our Community Grants program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in our community. We are proud to have invested more than $19 million locally since 1997. Our funding cycle runs from April 1 – March 31 every year.  Click here for more information on our Community Grants program.

The positive impact of this funding is significant, but it is not enough – as the need in our community continues to grow.
